If you are visiting Chevrolet’s booth at this year’s SEMA show forget the fancy trucks and custom Camaros. What you want to make a beeline for is this awesome Chevelle Slammer, rocking old school gansgta looks and modern underpinning presented by Chevrolet Performance division.
The Chevelle Slammer is a true restomod, combining the vintage design of a 1969 Chevelle with the latest and greatest performance parts Chevy has to offer for the muscle and sports car. The car packs a 535 horsepower LT376/535 crate engine with SuperMatic 4L75-E transmission which gives it Stingray-beating performance, and it’s intentionally styled to look as badass as it is possible for a car to look.
Being a Slammer, this custom Chevelle features an air suspension system and special flared wheel arches to accommodate large 18-inch front and 20-inch rear polished wheels. It’s also got Gen Six Camaro-based performance brake system, and Adrenaline Red instrument panel, door panels and carpet to the headliner, interior panels, console and seats. We think we’re right in saying we have found the star of 2016 SEMA show.
“The ’69 Chevelle is one of the best-looking cars of the muscle car era and we didn’t want to mess with its classic cues or period-perfect proportions,” said Humberto Ortiz, Chevrolet designer. “We’ve simply enhanced it where we could, knocking down the chrome in certain areas and tightening other exterior details such as the bumpers, grille and more. It’s still a 1969 Chevelle at a glance, but as you continue to examine it, the details really stand out.”
